Office of Sustainability





When people hear the term Sustainability, they often think of recycling, water conservation, and energy usage.  It is indeed all of those things, and so much more.  There are elements of social equity, ethical economics, and resource management as well.  "We," as a University, seek to become leaders in sustainability and engage the Cal Poly Pomona community to look at the interconnectedness of what we do and how it fits into the global challenges that exist.

Important note:  Images on this site are from before the pandemic and do not depict adherence to current safety protocols.  Please be safe and for campus updates and additional resources visit  COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information.
